Friends! Before writing this article let me tell you that privacy of your friends should be your prime concern and you should respect it. But many a time some status contains literally funny or close to your heart videos that you want it in your phone. But WhatsApp has enhanced its privacy policies and everything is encrypted and you cannot steal it all the way and you have to keep on requesting your friend who gonna trade with you, can have your favorite T-shirt or pen in swapping. If you want to escape from this trade you can follow the route I am going to explain in this article.

Note: This trick will help only android users. iPhone users can have any file reader software on their devices to do so. iPhone users can have such application installed from App secure and build their own media file kind of option to store or keep the required photos and videos which might be of importance.
Now, it can be done in three ways: without any software and with the help of any software.
How To Download WhatsApp Videos Status
Without Any Software
One thing you might not be knowing. When you see the status of any of your friend it gets downloaded in .Statuses files in your device. But this folder is usually hidden. Hold on! You neither have to break code of your iPhone or root your android device. I will tell you how to unhide this folder. Go to My files>Device Storage>Whatsapp > media> unhide files> .Statuses. And here you will find the downloaded status in video format. These can be HD or MP4 format. Here I am attaching the pictures for better explanation and understanding:
With The Help Of Software
In this method you have to install an application from Google Play Store. This app named Story Saver for WhatsApp. But keep in mind that this product does not belong to WhatsApp. It is simple to use. Download the app. Install it. Open the application after installing it and press on recent story. You will find the recent updated stories by your friends and you can select the one which you want to download. The downloaded file will be saved in the app. You should remember that this trick is useful only when you have already seen that particular status which you want to download.
- Lastly, there are some devices which have in built option of screen recording, like that of Vivo etc. so it becomes immensely easy to record the story running on your screen. What you are required to do is to tap on that icon of screen recording and start playing the status video you want to download. Though in this option you have to compromise with the quality. But this is one of the best methods. As you neither need a software nor need to trace a complex way to reach to the required status.
At the end I would again like to suggest that respect the privacy of all people around us and always ask for the permission before downloading their status video. It not only makes them feel secure but also the morally correct way.
